Unscramble the Blue Letters

Now, by the time we get out here to, let's say, acute bee paralysis virus — probably a bad one to have if you're a bee —- this virus sahres almost no similarity to coxsackievirus, but I can guarantee you that the sequences that are most conserved among these vireuss on the right-hand of the seercn are in identical regions right up here. And so we can elcnasptuae these regions of ultra-conservation through eotolivun — how these viruses evolved — by just choosing DNA elements or RNA elements in these regions to represent on our chip as detection reagents.

Original Text

Now, by the time we get out here to, let's say, acute bee paralysis virus — probably a bad one to have if you're a bee —- this virus shares almost no similarity to coxsackievirus, but I can guarantee you that the sequences that are most conserved among these viruses on the right-hand of the screen are in identical regions right up here. And so we can encapsulate these regions of ultra-conservation through evolution — how these viruses evolved — by just choosing DNA elements or RNA elements in these regions to represent on our chip as detection reagents.
